What do you like best?
The thing I like most about Cincopa is that it has plenty of features that help you organize, edit, view and manage the photos/videos online. You are practically in full control when it comes to organizing and managing. You can always see what you are working on and how it is going to look. Very practical for those who like to constantly check on the results.
Another feature that I really like is that it has a rich choice of professional templates, both for images and videos. You can see them real time while editing and they look absolutely professional when embedded.
Cincopa galleries are really easy to embed on the website. Just grab the code and you're good to go.
Responsiveness and touch functionalities are also as expected.
What do you dislike?
Unfortunately, Cincopa doesn't yet offer the possibility to edit the look and feel of the gallery or lightbox graphically, with sliders and buttons and in this department, there isn't much choice. You are stuck with the templates, albeit professional, not always theme friendly.
There is, of course, a possibility to edit the CSS but that is a good option for those willing to work with the code. I would like to see in the design department the same amount of features it offers in the management department.
I would, however, dive in the CSS if it was specified which piece of code changes what attribute, like for example, this particular code will change the color of the border or padding or border thickness, etc.
Another very important feature that is missing from Cincopa is advanced filtering. There is some sort of grouping available but I feel it is not enough. I would like to see more options related to tagging and selective viewing.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Great management of assets. Feature rich. Live preview at all stages. Professional and rich choice of templates. Super easy to embed. Looks clean and professional on my website.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
For the moment I haven't been able to use Cincopa on my business website because of the lack of the features that I've mentioned. I would love to use Cincopa as a simple product catalog with a simple description on the side, the ability to view and download related images and add links to external files. This would be great for products that are not sold online but need to be viewed online nonetheless.
I have been using Cincopa for other personal uses, however, and I feel it is the best and most feature rich, easy to use image/video gallery on the web.
